We choose the best and worst Oscars red carpet looks for 2014.

Topping our best dressed list has to be Cate Blanchett, who stunned in a nude Armani Prive gown. The deserved Best Actress winner often turns to the Italian designer for the biggest red carpet events, and it's not hard to see why.

She looked otherworldly in this romantic but modern number which was embellished with giant sequins and Swarovski crystals.

Also impressing was Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong'o, who chose a Grecian style, flowing baby blue Prada dress. She finished off the fairytale look with a Fred Leighton gold and diamond headband.

Kate Hudson was the very picture of old Hollywood glamour in Atelier Versace. This dramatically draped white silk dress featured a plunging neckline, shoulder pads, and a sprinkling of shimmer. Top marks. 

Jennifer Lawrence repeated her performance from last year by tripping on the red carpet in her orange Dior strapless gown with a peplum. This simple and stunning column dress was complimented by short, slicked back hair. A grown-up and beautiful look from the American Hustle star.

Charlize Theron also cut a statuesque figure in Dior. This very dramatic number featured invisible straps and a pleated train.

Amy Adams chose a strapless navy blue Gucci dress for this year's ceremony. A very nice and sophisticated number, but nothing too exciting. She wore her hair slicked back and minimal jewellery to complete the elegant look.

Angelina Jolie stunned on the red carpet wearing perennial red carpet favourite Elie Saab. This fabulous, shimmery gown featured long sleeves, sheer panelling and a deep plunging back.

Sandra Bullock looked beautiful wearing a draped navy blue Alexander McQueen satin gown. The sweetheart neckline and pleated detailing gave the dress a very feminine feel. 

Emma Watson chose a shimmery gunmetal grey Vera Wang for her red carpet appearance. The T-shirt shape top is pretty cool, but overall it's not as exciting as her previous red carpet choices.  

Margot Robbie, The Wolf of Wall Street's blonde bombshell, has gone brunette. We barely recognised the stunning star, who was wearing a strapless Saint Laurent gown.

Penelope Cruz is utterly fabulous, but this gúna is not working for us. She's wearing a pale pink Giambattista Valli gown with a ribbon belt, which is all a bit too sugary sweet.
